Never seen anyone like this Aldi: https://www.aldi.co.uk/en/specialbuys/sunday-4th-may/product-detail/ps/p/mens-and-ladies-triathlon-suit/
The yellow rucksack looks alright.Posted 3 years agorighogSubscriber
I Have loads of bike clothes,some very expensive, some from a pro team ( given to me by a sponsor, I am no pro ) Those softshell jackets are my favourite bit of bike kit, the base layers are also as good if not better than much more expensive kit. The shorts and underwear are also very good under baggies for quick blasts around the woods, not so good for epics, but well worth the price.Posted 3 years agowelshfarmerSubscriber
I bought a lightwight jacket, the spd shoes and a pair of mitts last time round. Despite being a Large the jacket was too small for my partner (she is a size 8/10!), the gloves split on the seems on both hands on the second ride and worst of all the SPD cleat fixings came loose in the shoe on the very first ride almost resulting in a broken leg as they failed to release. I had to remove the shoe from my foot and use a screwdriver to prise it off the pedal. In the past I have had some great kit with the Crane brand, but vowed there and then never to buy cycling kit from Aldi again.Posted 3 years ago
However, must say, the no quibble return was flawless and I simply took it all back for a refund.natrixMember
What are the rucksacks like?
I bought one of their bike rucsacs with drinking system (a camelback type affair) seven years ago, thinking that it would last a year or two. It’s still going strong, one of the poppers came off the weather cover, and the clip for holding the hose to the strap fell off, but other than that it has lasted well.Posted 3 years ago
Popped in to the local Aldi tonight, they were putting the cycle gear out at 7.45 as we finished our shopping. When I went to find shorts, the staff said that it wouldn’t go through the tills till tomorrow morning. Grrr, half the point of going was to get an early run at the cycle gear. Still, got loads of supplies and can always call into the Buxton store en route to tomorrow’s ridePosted 3 years agoheadfirstMember
Mission accomplished! 😀
Got a new jersey for 8 quid which looks and fits nice but I’m most impressed with my new ‘casual cycling shorts’ for 12 quid, baggies with a padded liner, much nicer feeling material than my altura attacks, with more stretch and give.
20 quid all in, result.
And sardines in tomato sauce only 40p a tin!!! Box of 24 bought.Posted 3 years agospitfire355Member
I went earlier on today, great range of stuff.
Got some shorts, 2 jerseys, pair of shoes (which look pretty well made), backpack (VERY impressed with that), socks and a running shirt, totalled just over £80
Sorted for the summer now
EDIT – forgot about the ultralight jacket, it weighs nothing!Posted 3 years agotrail_ratMember
I went in at 12 to do the weekly shop
Couldnt move for folk rushing to buy ill fitting cycling clothing , cheap lights and a pump i wouldnt trust to inflate a football at home never mind a bike tire to self recover from the cairngorms.
They were litterally fighting over it.
I bought some jeyes fluid and a utility lighter.Posted 3 years ago
